There are plenty of places to party in Hong Kong — but how do you take advantage of the best boozy deals this town has to offer? Check out our handy guide below.
Monday: Shaken, Not Stirred
Start your week right at Porterhouse by Laris: On weeknights, the restaurant offers a two-for-one deal on martinis ($80-$120) and complimentary light bites. The signature Definitive Dirty Martini, in particular, comes served with blue cheese olives (!). Not enough to draw you in? On Monday evenings, oysters are just $15 apiece.
7/F, California Tower, 30-36 D’Aguilar Street, Central, 2522-6366.
Not into martinis? Banish those Monday blues at Linguini Fini’s beer and wing night. For $98, you’ll have all the PBRs and chicken wings you can stomach for four and a half hours. What’s not to love?
49 Elgin Street, Central, 2387-6338.
Tequila not your style? Head to Stone Nullah Tavern for possibly the cheapest happy hour in town. Every weekday starting from 5pm, drinks sell for a whopping dollar, doubling in price every 20 minutes. The death knell sounds at 7pm, during which you’ll pay $64 per drink.
69 Stone Nullah Lane, Wan Chai, 3182-0128.
Wednesday: Dim Sum and Then Some
There’s nothing worse than dancing on an empty stomach. Hit up Wednesdaze DJ & Dim Sum Night at Duddell’s — for $350, you get your fill of free-flow dim sum and drinks alongside live DJ beats.
Wednesday, 6-10pm. 3/F, Shanghai Tang Mansion, 1 Duddell Street, Central, 2525-9191.
Prefer to stick to a liquid diet? Room One puts on special prices on cocktails, wines and beers every day of the week! During the week, enjoy unlimited New Zealand mussels in white wine sauce and free-flow wines for just $238!
Daily happy hour, 5pm to 9pm, free-flow mussels and wine Monday-Thursday 7pm-9pm.
G/F, The Mira, 118 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, 2315-5888.
Thursday: Get Down
For the most decadent happy hour of the week, head down to Dragon-i, where you’ll enjoy free-flow Moët & Chandon Ice Imperial Champagne, and all-you-can-eat oysters and caviar. Pair with smooth tunes spun by the club’s DJs.
Wednesday – Friday, 5pm-9pm.
UG/F, The Centrium, 60 Wyndham Street, Hong Kong, 3110-1222
Friday: Bottomless Booze
Duck off from work early and kickstart your weekend with happy hour at Pirata: for $180, you get free-flow aperol spritz cocktails for two and a half hours.
Friday-Sunday, 5pm-7:30pm. 29-30/F, 239 Hennessy Road, Wan Chai, 2887-0270.
Saturday: Brunching Out
Zuma is known for its legendary Sunday brunches — but you can take things to the next level at Saturday Sessions ($450), which put the focus on boozy offerings as well as dishes good for sharing (edamame; skewers; platters of nigiri and maki). Look out for the live DJ taking to the decks.
Saturday, 1pm-3:30pm. Shop 501-503, 5/F, The Landmark, 15 Queen’s Road Central, 3657-6388.
Sunday: Raise the Roof
Need some hair of the dog? Spend Sunday afternoon recovering from the night before on the terrace at Armani/Privé. For $250, you get free-flow drinks and chilled beats from the bar’s resident DJ.
Sunday, 4pm-7pm. 3/F, Chater House, 8 Connaught Road Central, 3583-2828.
Alternatively, wrap up the weekend with a boozy afternoon at beach club Cabana (pictured in feature image). Overlooking the ocean, this sprawling Repulse Bay hotspot puts on sunset parties every weekend. Each guest gets a bottle of champagne and soft drinks for $580. Go baller with other packages ($3,000 and up), which include the use of private cabanas and sun seekers. All guests have access to Cabana’s onsens and towel service. Oh, and be prepared to have champagne sprayed on you at least once.
Saturday-Sunday, 3pm-7pm. Lobby A Rooftop, The Pulse, 28 Beach Road, Repulse Bay, 2889-5939.
